First winner and next book!

First, the news: Marla S. has won Jonathan Waxman’s A Great American Cook: Recipes from the Home Kitchen of One of Our Most Influential Chefs! Hooray!

summer cookingFor those of you who are not Marla, the next book I’ll be giving away is Elizabeth David’s Summer Cooking. It’s the UK edition from 1969 but it’s in lovely shape.

For those of you unfamiliar with Elizabeth David’s work, all I can say is: you are missing out on probably one of the best food writers of the 20th century.

I don’t even want to say too much about this book, because I kind of want whoever ends up with it be as delighted about it as I was the first time I read it, BUT just to give an idea of what reading Summer Cooking feels like… to me, it’s like you are finally getting to know that slightly older friend-of-a-friend whose seemingly effortless cooking ability has always intimidated you — only to find that not only is she willing to teach you what she knows, she’s actually really fun to talk to, and it gives you a sort of adolescent oh-man-she-is-so-totally-cool-I-can’t-wait-to-be-like-her fizzy feeling inside.

Maybe that’s just me.

Anyway! Don’t forget, you can’t win if you’re not a fan, so you haven’t already, drop by Facebook before next Thursday at noon to be entered.
